1  Economy / Gambling discussion / How Do You See Losing Your Weekly Payment to The Casino on: February 27, 2024, 10:49:21 PM
Sorry guys I have to make this thread self-moderated to keep spam off from making garbage comments on this thread.

Now my experience today,  so I got my weekly signature payment only stake account few hours ago,  and for some reason, I decided to gamble with it and bet on the Newcastle vs Blackburn rovers and with a draw for the games I chose which gave me an 2.5 odds at the time of staking the bet,  but at the end,  the,  Newcastle first made the first goals score making the match to stand at 1:0 at that point,  I made used of the available cash out which was almost a 60% lose from my initial bet amount,  but then I thought it better than losing all at the end.

Now I staked another bet with my remaining available balance and also I lost the bet and that brought my balance back to zero which means I lost all the money paid to me back to the stake casino, this reality triggered up this question in me.

How do you see losing your payment to the casino?

Do you see losing your payment back to the casino as your own form of indirect support for the project?

Do you think that I already have a bad gambling mindset thinking that by engaging in one or two bets or games I am supporting the project I promote?

This topic is for general discussions,  but I would like to hear and read what those who are promoting casinos/book markers that pay them directly into their casino accounts.

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Have we overlooked the many potentials of altcoins? on: December 27, 2023, 05:52:47 PM
A lot of times we have been down so much away from the role altcoins play in the cryptocurrency industry,  because there is no doubt the fact that many times,  we have come face to face with issues and challenges that make us to look for an alternatives,  and which is the reason for altcoins creations already,  such as fees,  congestion and speeds.

These have been most of the challenges that we face in the cryptocurrency industry with majority of the time our preferred coin may face network issues and we need to look for alternatives,  this has made it very important for us to discuss the best possible means to make use of altcoins as alternatives when there be network crisis.

What are the best coins to use at a time when there is network congestion in the main meme pool?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Cristiano Ronaldo get 1 billion dollars lawsuit for his NFT failure on: December 02, 2023, 10:18:03 PM

The altcoins market have witnessed alot of hype, wave and different trends and one of the popular among those trends in the last year is the Non-fugitive tokens (NFTs), which promises to give content creators the right of the owner of their work on the blockchain which right is transferable, this hyp created al9t of noise within and outside the cryptocurrency communitie.

But also, just like every ofher hypes, that have happened in the market,  there have been alot of failures, exit scams and alot of ofher unhealthy situations that have lead to investors lost of money, and at this point any NFTs that want to gain promotion and visibility must first ascribe to a popular figure and this time, the Ai Baser former Manchester united player and world football legends, Cristiano Ronaldo, have been cught up in the web of crisis as the NFT he promoted to investors have failed to attain success and those aggrieved investors have approach the xourt and decided to get the player sued for promoting what they call investment failure.

This lead me to ask the question of that the extent of Crustiano Ronaldo involvement un the NFT project, us he a part of the Directors or he just promited the project.

But then also whichever ways, i hope cristiano Renaldo is having a good laywer to stand in for him.

What are you take in all of this situation.
4  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Opay-Fin Fech Companies Gaining Ground in Nig on: December 02, 2023, 06:58:44 PM
Although opay have been around since 2017-2018, at least that is how far back that I started using Opay while as an undergraduate,  the fintech seemed unpopular back then but was still available and gave their customers the best of service, a digital bank which offers some other investment and point of sales services (POS).

Recent events in the financial sector, with the cashless society and naira swapping crisis in 2023 be for the presidential elections, alot of these fintech banking systems become the best alternative for Nigerians, this leads  to increase in the popularity of most of the fintech companies ranging from OPAY, MONIE POINT, PALM PAY, KUDA and the rest, of many of them that are thriving today.

But even at that, most Nigerians still have they reservations about the digital banks due to the non-physical office and representations, but recent events have shown a different paradigm and one of those digital banks is gaining awards and physical offices opening.


First was an award as best fin tech company, and the second is the opening of a physical offices in some major city's in Nigeria.

5  Economy / Gambling discussion / How safe do you feel with casinos that ask you to input your log detail. on: October 27, 2023, 07:29:27 PM
With the recent happening as related to phishing, and hacks of accounts a lot of awareness has to be created around the gambling community most especially,  in the area of security and safety of accounts.

This has led me to desire to know the community,  reaction on this subject matter of user login details being frequently asked by a casino,  do you feel safe to see a casino asking you for user name,  or phone number and password each time you open the site in your browser.

To me, a session n n should last until the gamblers close the browser instead of being online and when you want to backspace or check out some feature outside your current mode the prompt for a new login comes up.

I feel unsafe with this and I have avoided the casino,  but that is just my thought but it be nice if I had your views on this.

Are you positive or negative on casinos asking for log-in frequently or do you feel unsafe in putting your login details every time?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / What Coin is Best for short term speculation on: October 22, 2023, 07:58:18 PM
The recent events in the market have prompted my attention to some of the altcoins that have performed alongside Bitcoin,  such as Ethereum and some other me coins that gave their investors some level of profits within the short term that Bitcoin took a dramatic shift in price from 25k to around 30k which is a significant good amount and that will promote some desire to invest in some other altcoins that followed the trend giving their holder some level of profits in the short term.

This situation pushed me to ask this simple question.

What altcoin is the best for short-term speculation,  some of my friends offline have speculated people but then I don't have much faith in meme coins.
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / A Nigeria socialite went all in on this sport bet on: October 21, 2023, 05:07:42 PM
Early hours of today,  one of the Nigeria billionaire business man E money shared his bet slip online for fans to see how much he splashed on the game between Chelsea vs Asernal which already on and Cheslea leading with 1:0, this brought me to the point of asking what your opinion on celebrities staking higher amount and still be ok to publicly show it and do not feel any thing even if the ticket cut just like what happened to Drake last few weeks back.

What is you view and analysis on this bet,  although I see that he be confident in his selections to have staked such an amount,  but since football is a game of unpredictability,  what then ks your views on this game even though the match is currently live.
8  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / DCA BTC-USDT- ₦ my current formula due to Nig situation on: October 20, 2023, 07:11:13 PM
Is no longer news that the current Nigeria 🇳🇬 naira value against the United States dollar 💸 has skyrocketed to a record high of ₦1200, many of those who are not well grounded in Assets management and currency pricing due to a lack of global currency statistical knowledge or information in regards to currency volatilities.

this thread discussion should be focused on the statistical analysis of the current market situation and how best we can apply the DCA approach to stay at gains using the naira vs the USDT and thereafter USDT vs BTC.

Current market prices

BTC= $30k
USDT =₦1200

Basic price analysis considering the currency's weaknesses against each other.

From the above market conditions,  Bitcoin is the highest gainer in the market and at that, we use Bitcoin as the primary asset and use the bought price of 25k taking into account data of price as at 6 days cycle (1week).

Many within the country Nigeria may be blaming the current naira value against the US dollar on bad economy or governance,  but then even the US dollar also is depreciating rapidly against other currencies such as bitcoin,  so let's take off the mindset of internal economy and make only statistical analysis taking into account all data and components,  that make up for the global exchange price movement and how the global currency pricing run as a chain.

Taking advantage now to DCA your bitcoin looks to be the best approach right now if you are a short-term bitcoin market speculator using Nigeria's naira as your primary currency, 

9  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Is Nigeria's movie industry only favouring the ladies? on: October 19, 2023, 11:44:49 PM
       ....our prayers are with Mr IBU in this trying time and we pray for quick recovery........
My people,  I know by now most of us for don watch or read waiten is happening in the Nigeria movie industry,  the two trending stories coming up from that industry in the last two week is that of the young 20+ actress who splashed millions of naira in buying a house for herself within few year/ month into the acting business.

Another one comes to be that of John Okafor who has been a comic actor for over 20 years,  his own na sickness,  one of his legs 🦵 may be amputated if not flown ✈️  abroad for urgent medical attention,  he has carried to the public with his personal account flying all around social media seeking for donations,  now goes how much he need,  just 7 million naira to fly out for medical treatment.

So this thing come made me the wonder say how can a very popular actor who have put smiles on people's face for over 20 year can afford to foot his travelling and treatment arrangement for such a small amount of 7 million, which will result in a public donation.

And a young girl who is bearly known for getting such an amount of money that runs into hundreds of millions within a short period to splash on such a home for herself,  and her case is one among many of her colleagues who have bought SUV cars worth millions in the same movies industry.

So the thing comes that makes me wonder what really happens, is why the ladies make amm for that industry and the men are poor or even below average,  because most of the deaths of actors that we have seen are mostly as a result of proper financial care at some point,   the thing comes to the look like say the more you look the less you see for Nigeria movie industry.
10  Economy / Gambling discussion / Sports bets or in-house games, which is best for the weekend. on: October 18, 2023, 12:23:00 PM
Hey, fellow gamblers so I have some free time for the coming weekend and I want to spend it with family and also enjoy some games,  I want maximum entertainment and fun to ease me off the stress.

My challenge is, I have limited funds to spend on gambling for the weekend so I have to be very accurate and certain about what I will be spending my money on this weekend, and I am confused about which of the games to go for.

weekends are for football matches, where I can watch the games,  make analyses and stake my bets along that line,  which have always been the usual rutin for all.

Also in house games are also very exciting and entertaining since I will be in control of the games and their potential outcomes keeping in mind the possibility of the house edge,  so this brought me to this confusing position between which of the both to choose from and so I will like to get individual opinions on the best games for the weekend.

Sport bets vs in-house games which is most enjoyable and has a higher tendency of bringing much winning compared to it possibility of losing?

12  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Remitano exchange Bitcoin wallet under maintenance. on: August 24, 2023, 09:37:57 PM

13  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Binance Nigeria is a scammer entity be warn on: June 20, 2023, 11:08:25 AM
My people I say make I bring this update here sake of say for some time we discuss about binance cryptcucrency exchange and sec issues in the local board and the general forum, and how the Nigeria Securities and exchange commission faulted the operation of binance Nigeria subsidiary as illegal and unregistered.

The Sec we're right because, in a recent update from the exchange CEO  ZHAO distancing from binance Nigeria,  that means all the while the cryptocurrency exchange called binance Nigeria is a scam even though there have not been reports of them exiting with traders' balance for those you stars up bitcoin and other coins on the exchange.

I have not used binance Nigeria before and I believe most members of this forum apart from newbies will already know the real binance exchange from the scam exchange called binance Nigeria.

My question now is,  is have you ever used binance Nigeria to trade either bitcoin or other coins before,  if yes do you have a balance on the crypto exchange I mean the binance Nigeria subsidiary?

14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Who is to be blamed, the gambler or the betting agent on: June 19, 2023, 10:18:03 PM
A situation occurred today in my locality,  I have some guys working for me today and suddenly I hard them battling with an issues and when I get close to them to know what exactly the problem is,  and I asked the guy who look strange to me since I am meeting him for the first time and not a worker on the site what his business and why he is distracting the workers from work.

Then the guy narrated his case to be and he said,  that one of the workers came to his betting shop the yesterday to play some visual,  that at first the guy came with ₦‎1,000 in my local currency to make the bets and along the line, he existed the balance but as a regular customer,  the agent decided to allow him at further on credits and in all he accumulated a total debt of ₦‎8,000 because he lost all the bets and since that yesterday he has been on the run from the gambling agent until he traced him to the site today.

So when I wanted to judge the case and possible settlement,  I query the casino agent how can you allow a customer to gamble on credit to the tune of 8k Knowing fully well that the gambler only has a 1k balance which already existed?

Also what is the probability that the gambler will ever return after owning such debt in the betting shops,  note the gambler's daily pay is 2k as a helper on the site,  so he has to work for 4 days to be able to meet that debt that is if he doesn't make any other expenses.

Question is:

What is the possibility of the betting agent getting his money soon/considering the gambler's low-income earnings?
15  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin Price, Where Next on: June 19, 2023, 01:46:36 PM
It has been clear that a lot of funds have to drag the price of Bitcoin to a low against previous months' Bitcoin price,  bitcoin started the year 2023 on a positive note after it recovered from a major market crisis before the FTX and the rest made the entire 2022 a negative price period and also made the price of Bitcoin and another asset to plumb greatly all through to 2023 before the current price of 26k+ which seems to be the lowest base the market liquidity can close on and at the current price.

So what next are we going to witness a low price movement or more recovery that will place us on the verge of a market break out against the next year's Bitcoin halving and anticipated bull run which can come before the halving or after the halving with both having the percentage possibilities.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / I think topics/discussion on gambling addictions is too much on: June 16, 2023, 08:11:03 PM
This is gambling discussion sub board of the gambling board of bitcointalk forum,  and the main goals of the gambling board is where casinos introduced the platforms via creation of ANN threads and also the discussion sub board where gamblers discuss many other topics as relate to gambling.

But recently I have read a lot of topics as regards to gambling (addictions) and it negative effects on individuals and how we have warn against it,  but at this time I am beginning to think that we are focusing too much on gambling addiction rather than employing ways to avoid addiction but at the same time gamble and have fun to the fullest.

The topics and discussion about gambling addiction is becoming too much and too often to the point that most newbie may likely get scared away from gambling which will not be ok for the casino revenue generation so at this point I am force to ear my view of this topic of gambling addictions, becoming too much in this board.

Or what do you think?
17  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / the impact of the border reopening and the unified exchange rate on the naira on: June 06, 2023, 09:53:47 PM
As the new administration of President Bola Tinubu kicks off properly, the ground has been hit ruined and the government is taking steps to help revitalize the economy and also taking steps to strengthen the naira against the United States dollar which is the major exchange currency in the international stock market.

Major breakthrough by the new government:

1: one of the significant moves this government made was the president's inaugural speech where he declared that fuel subsidy is gone since then we have seen the impact of that speech on the petroleum product PMs pump price, but with its long-term gain on the economy as the government now gives licenses to independent markets and private individuals to import petroleum and sell at market price, that means more competition that will eventually lead to price case.

2: border reopening,  this have been a speculation around the social media that the president have have reopened the Nigerian border which has been closed by the past administration all throughout the 8 years tenure, and this will open up the Nigerian economy to the international marketplace where. Exchange of goods and services will take place.

What impact does all of this have on the value of the naira against the dollars?
My analysis of the term:
The naira has been devalued furthermore by the Central Bank of Nigeria from the official price of ₦‎464 to $1 to around ₦‎645 as a unified exchange price according to the new government, well we all know that the dollar's official price has always been under subsidy too, since at the black market all of us who are into cryptocurrency already used to the black market price of ₦‎700+ for the past one year or also so we are more enlightened that other members of the public on how much the government pay as dollars subsidy just to keep the exchange rate at that so-called official price of ₦‎464.

So at this point what can we make out of this situation and at the same time what are the advantage that awaits traders most especially cryptocurrency traders and those that exchange their USTD, Bitcoin and other digital assets into the Nigeria naira in this period?

Do you think the unified exchange rate will stabilize the naira value?

18  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / Which cryptocurrency payment/exchange platform allows domestic payments on: May 03, 2023, 06:34:02 PM
My people I greet una, abeg e get waiten done the run through my head for some time now and I one say make I drop ammm here make we put mouths to see how we fit enlighten ourselves about the topic:
First make I define waiten e mean by cryptocurrency platform/exchange

cryptocurrency platforms/exchange na the same as the various method were we take the exchange our bitcoin into naira and withdrawing them into our bank accounts,  and examples of this platforms/exchange are Remitano, binance p2p, quidax yellow card etc.

But for all these platforms, I never see one that allowed users to send money from their balance to a third-party from their account balance on the exchange or allow customers to make bills payments such as electricity bills, DSTV,  and buying of air time just like our traditional bank apps allows us to, and if we fit to get something near that.

That is a cryptocurrency exchange platform that allows those services and if there os none it will be a good development for the tech guys to develop such exchange in Nigeria and  that will attract a lot pf cryptocurrency users since they will have the ease of making payments directly from their balance on the exchange without haven't to go through the hustle of depositing the money into a fiat bank account before making those payments.

Na why I say make I ask this question for we local board be that, make we share ideas if there is any of such platform that offers such service where customers can convert the bitcoin into naira and use it to make payments directly from the platform into individual third-party accounts or being able to make bills payments?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How Confident Are you With Altcoin In This Time on: April 30, 2023, 07:50:18 PM
Quite a lot have happened in the crypto investment market with the long run of a bear market in 2022, as a result of the various market crisis ranging from ftx bankruptcy and Luna crash that affect the market for a long time, before the present recovery, many crypto analysts such as myself are confused as for what the level of confidence of investors towards altcoins in this period. Do you consider any altcoin to be pf future profiting, if yes then what is the percentage calculation of your confidence level in that coin and why should we hold them for a long-term basis?
20  Local / Nigeria (Naija) / banks in 9ja that are most p2p crypto-friendly bank with fast transaction speed on: April 11, 2023, 11:19:41 PM
Note: cryptocurrency transaction what I mean is not direct bank involvement but their services in adding faster p2p transactions without crypto related key words as those are red flagged offense by the CBN

Why I think this topic is necessary, is because of the recent events in the Nigerian banking system and how the central bank is putting more attention to e-transactions and monitoring citizens' banking transactions.

Secondly why I created this thread is to also equip us with the necessary information as related to 9Ja bank vs cryptocurrency transactions, as we all are aware of the fact that the CBN have a blanket ban on the bank - cryptocurrency interactions and any account found guilty may get banned or blocked.

To this challenge, a lot of cryptocurrency traders and ordinary users have become sceptical about the on most of the banks we have in our financial system because we all know the attack from the bank of cryptocurrency most especially decentralized coins such as Bitcoin since they see it as a threat to their own existence.

So the ultimate question is.

Which bank in Nigeria do you think is the most cryptocurrency-friendly and you have used it for your transactions without any issues, in terms of network speed, availability of bank on P2p platform and what is the extent of your trust in them to not link your accounts to crypto and leaking your data to governments agency.
From my own experiences, I think the most cryptocurrency-friendly bank at the moment are

1: Kuda Microfinance bank
2: palmpay
3: Opay

The most crypto-unfriendly bank is.

1: standard chartered bank plc, from history this bank and is known for easily flagging customers' account so cryptocurrency users are advised to avoid using the bank for cryptocurrency transactions.
